Wow! Such an amazing and helpful post this is. I really really love it best pizza in elberta al

It was an amazing experience for me to see such old footage on cooking. The recipe and flavor of the cuisine must have been great. Thank you so much for such mini memorial moment.

Now this is some amazing footage.  It really gives you a flavor for cuisine and cooking in the 1950s.  It is hard for us to image what it was like then given the way we celebrate celebrity chefs now.  I just interviewed Jacques Pepin recently who has been a master chef for decades and on KQED often.  It is great to see footage of a time like this when Chef Pepin was still honing his skills as well.  Thanks for the post.
